This town hall assembles educators, deans, students and parents to address the issues surrounding these courses and degrees. To be discussed:

  • Why should we have a cannabis and hemp curriculum and what is the impact on students and their college career?
  • Is it an economic opportunity for students to get educated on cannabis and hemp and the business, health, and legal opportunities, etc.?
  • Should offering a cannabis and hemp curriculum across colleges be just as mainstream as offering any other classes like Political Science, Psychology, Language, etc.?
